Most trail etiquette simply comes down to common sense, and respecting other trail users. Our goal is to help educate all users about what to expect out on our trails to ensure a safe enjoyable experience for everyone. For instance, did you know to talk to horses when you encounter them so they know your are a person. Or that a lead ATV rider holding up two fingers means there are 2 more vehicles behind them?
We are happy to add other resources if you have suggestions!
